6:51am
we'll shave off a couple degrees and cooler weather is on the horizon and potential for some talk about heading into the weekend. i will get to the details coming up in a bit. let's take a look at current conditions right now. we're seeing upper 50s, low 60s out the door. 59 waking up in oakland. as we see where the numbers will go into the afternoon, again much cooler compared to what we saw yesterday. yesterday was still relatively warm. the fog didn't return inland areas. we saw sunny skies with temperatures in the low 90s. we are bringing it down a notch, introducing cloud cover this afternoon. 75 for sunnyvale, 73 expected in mountain view and a day of upper 70s for antioch, livermore. 76 in pleasanton and 69 expected in heyward. in the north bay, sunny keys will prevail, low 7 ons -- keep in mind we were in the low 70s yesterday and gray skies
6:52am
on tap, low 60s heading to ocean beach. 62 in daily city and flirting with 70 in san bruno. heading to fleet week, look at the forecast this weekend. we'll see some fog into the early morning hours. if you are not outdoors watching, you could always watch on kron4, comcast 193. let's focus on the forecast. we'll see clear conditions into the afternoon along san francisco water front. it looks like the winds will push the fog out of our way and with that, temperatures in the low 60s. your seven day around the bay forecast highlights changes into the weekend. we are following a low coming in well off from our coastline expected to arrive monday into tuesday. with that, cooler temperatures, much cooler in fact. we have the potential for some rain. we'll keep monitoring that as we get closer. at 6:52 it is time for traffic with george. >> trafficking a number of hot spots as we look at the ride on
6:53am
580 west bound. it is really jammed out at the pass with a 46 minute drive time. i expect that time will continue to climb. the accident at the 580/680 has been changed. it managed to jam up this ride. looking at your commute in the south bay, we have two major problems at work. one is an accident in julien. that's gone. the other is the accident at great america parkway that shut down the off ramp from great america. look at what that's done to the ride. you can see it is a 36 minute commute and that time is likely to continue to grow. this is traffic from the parkway toward great america and with the closure of the ramp and activity on the shoulder it is bringing traffic to an early stand still on 101 north. back to the traffic maps for another hot spot this time in high ward on 880 south bound at
6:54am
highway 992, an accident backing up traffic beyond the 238 connecting ramp in the lorenzo loop which is the connector from 238 onto 880 south bound. looking at your bay bridge ride at the toll plaza, let's switch over like so. back up is running at 18 to 22 minutes depending on your approach. as we have seen even the 880 ride gets backed up for your commute. the back up reaches all the way across the toll plaza for your ride on 880 north leading to west bound bay bridge. >> thank you. there is much coming up on the morning news. possible anti-semitism at uc berkeley. we'll have that coming up for you. here is a live look where we have slow traffic on 101. current temperature is 57. 72 by noon, 76 come this afternoon. we'll be right back.
